Jacqueline "Jackie" Collins

October 4, 1937 - September 19, 2015 Beverly Hills, California

Ms. Collins was a prominent British-American romance novelist best known for her 32 novels, all of which appeared on the New York TImes bestsellers list. In total, her books have sold over 500 million copies worldwide. She was the younger sister of actress Joan Collins.

Collins' first novel, The World is Full of Married Men, was published in 1968, and while it was initially derided as salacious, the scandal served to boost sales worldwide and pave the way for a long career of writing about bad boys and the girls who fall for them.

Jackie Collins is my favorite author. Love all of her books, but the Lucky/Santangelo series is the best. That era is now ended. Rest in Peace Beautiful Woman. You will be greatly missed. With Sincere, Deepest Sympathy, Carol Basquez

Jackie was my favorite Author. She inspired me to write, I met her once in Louisiana when she was on book tour. She was awesome. When she signed my book, she seemed upset because I just wanted her name and the date. But was pleased I had all of her books and gave me tips on how to get them cheaper. lol, I will miss her so much. Please get all of her books in movies and on DVD I would buy all of them.

This day will never be forgotten. So sad to hear of your passing. I created most of my online accounts in reference to your character "Lucky". You helped take me away from reality as I settled down with everyone of your books that I proudly own and have read and reread several times. Rest in peace Jackie, you will be greatly missed!

To the family of Jackie Collins,

I truly enjoyed and looked forward to reading each and every book of Ms. Jackie. I found her writing the most pleasing and enjoying. She wrote wonderful books that encourage me to read more as a teen and into my adult life. I gave her books to many a friend and was happy to receive new ones. I am very sad to hear of her loss.

My favorite memory of Ms. Collins' visit to Oprah show when she was promoting "ROCK STAR". Ms. Collins brought the members of KISS with her to promote the book and you could tell both Ms. Collins and the KISS band enjoyed being on the stage. It was so much fun to watch.

Ms. Jackie, thank you for all your wonderful stories and may you REST IN PEACE. You brought joy to your many fans.
